Default Win7 64bit / Vent 3.0.5 / USB speakers

After installing the vent 3.0.5 client on win7 64 bit and opening vent, pressing connect and it appears to work correctly, but I can't hear any speech, although I can see that people are speaking. I play WoW, btw.

[Unable to activate DirectSound for selected device.
DirectSoundCaptureCreate failed. HR=DSERR_NODRIVER. No sound driver is available for use.]

I currently use USB speakers, is the above error because of that?

I had win98 XP pro 64 bit (along with the same usb speakers) installed before win7 and vent worked with no problems.

Any suggestions? Additional information available upon request.

in vent setup/voice-binds-speech tabs, set the output device to enable 'use directsound' then set the name to that of the usb speakers

@smc

the error message indicates a problem with the mic input. in vent setup, is the input set for 'use directsound' and the name of the mic device?

check for this too:

does the mic work here:

Windows Vista/Windows 7
Programs / Accessories / Sound Recorder / create a recording then save it
Windows Media Player (WMP) / playback recording
